DIY Holiday Gifts: Wire Wrapped Jewelry
Wire wrapping is one of the oldest techniques for making handmade jewelry. But don't let that be a turn-off. It's also fun, modern and fresh! (Think Festival Fabulous!) Join us to learn the nuances of wire-wrapping design as we tackle the technique, create beaded links, integrate charms, wire-wrap briolettes (That's a fancy word for tear-drop shaped beads) and finish with findings. By the end of the class, you'll walk away with a solid understanding of this jewelry-making method and a new piece of jewelry. Bragging-rights, much? Absolutely. Materials Fee: $15 per person which will be collected on-site The Studio address will be provided for Students who book this experience.
